32AWG, 7/6 1.75mm i.d. m.c. = 2.2Ω √
32AWG, 5/4 2mm i.d., loose m.c. = 1.85Ω √
30AWG, 11/10 1.75mm i.d., t.m.c. =2.35Ω √
30AWG, 11/10 1/16-1.58mm i.d., m.c. = 2.1Ω √
30AWG, 11/10 1/16-1.58mm i.d., m.c. = 2.1Ω √ #292 MrOcelot
30AWG, 11/10, 1.2mm i.d., t.m.c. = 1.8Ω √ #601 Christopherja
30AWG, 10/9 1/16-1.58mm i.d., m.c. = 2.04Ω

Everything all laid out.
You'll see 2 long legs.
Feed both legs thru the center hole
I took the shorter lead and pulled it tight to maintain tension and lightly wrapped it around the bit.

I am using 30ga kanthal, and I have wound 1.8, 2.0, 1.8, 1.9 ohm respectively for the coils I have done, which I am thrilled with. I am wicking these with organic cotton, not boiled.
Thanks, Mac, and everyone else on this thread for the knowledge.

It should do the job if you use a 1/16 bit or anything very similar to that. The reasoning behind that is the majority of the data came from wraps around 1/16 bits.
All you have to do is input
